    Interview

    The first round was a behavioral Skype interview. The interviewer was very friendly, she was a finance major with an mba but moved to HR full time for better family life. Mostly asked specific questions about my resume. Only asked a few behavioral questions. Second round was a full day at the office with multiple interview and a trip to lunch.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Ocean Tomo.

    Interview

    The process is pretty simple. You meet wtih 5 or 6 people and they basically ask you questions to try to figure out how smart you are and how you think. My advice- read about the company before you come it, and think of some insightful questions you can ask the interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • There is case study you have to fill out, so I can't really put a question here.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They made me an offer, I asked for more, they declined to offer more. I took the job anyway (the initial offer was great... I just figured it never hurts to ask).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ocean Tomo (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online. First, I got an e-mail saying they were interested in speaking to me via a phone interview. I had an interview with the recruiting director in San Francisco who is a really awesome lady. It was about a 30 minute conversation and i was invited to interview at the Chicago headquarters.

    I met with about 5 different people ranging in positions from Analyst to Director. Everyone is very nice. They don't expect you to understand IP damages litigation, they just want to see how you think and if you are a good fit. If you are in the interview, you are most likely smart enough to work at OT.

    There is a case study at the end where they want you to use various approaches to arrive at a damages calculation. If financial statements don't confuse you, it isn't very hard.

    I received my offer via a phone call the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • I'd recommend doing a good amount of research on what Ocean Tomo does before you come. Take the time to show you care about the work you could be doing because chances are you don't know anything about it yet.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ocean Tomo (Chicago, IL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    1st Round was a skype interview.
    2nd Round was at their headquarters. Met with a few people including a director and interviewed with all of them. Also had lunch with a couple of analysts. There was also a case interview. Overall, easy. They don't expect you to know much about intellectual property. They are looking for if you are analytical enough or not.

    Interview Questions

    • Case was not a traditional format, but more of scenario analysis i.e. if you trying to find X, what tools would you use to analyze the problem.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ocean Tomo (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview was about a half day long. I met over a dozen people at all levels, which was great. I even interviewed with one of the owners for half an hour. I decided over lunch that I wanted to work there because the people who took me to lunch were so enthusiastic about the company.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a case study they presented me that was a bit difficult. But the person who went over it with me afterwards did a good job of asking questions that helped me form better answers.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate for more money. Why not, right? But they said it was pretty much a take it or leave it offer. It was a good offer so I took it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ocean Tomo (Chicago, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    It started with a Skype interview, then I was invited for a day in the office to meet with several employees and have lunch. Everything was behavioral and simple, except one of the interviews was a case interview. Compared to other consulting firms' case interviews, this one was a breeze, since they can't really expect you to know about intellectual property.

    Everyone was nice enough, but to be honest the people were soooo boring and dry that I had trouble holding my head up by the end of the day. One of the women I interviewed with peered over her glasses and glared at me the entire time. Very unfriendly and did not speak very eloquently either. I was not impressed, and she was one of the reasons I turned down my offer. I would think you would need better social skills to get to her level - apparently not at this firm.
